Liverpool hero Aldridge: No problem if Rodgers lands Man Utd job

Liverpool hero John Aldridge would have no complaints if Brendan Rodgers took the Manchester United job.

The Leicester City manager is a candidate for the job, despite his Liverpool links.

Aldridge wrote for the Liverpool Echo: "I don't care who Man United get as their new manager, but whoever they do get I hope they have a nightmare.

"At the end of the day, Brendan Rodgers was sacked by Liverpool. He didn't walk away and was all nicey-nicey, so he's entitled to do what he wants.

"You can lose a lot of affection for a club by being sacked, even though the results weren't good.

"For me, if he wants to go, then he wants to go, end of story. If he wants it, see what happens, but it would be interesting if he did get it."
